This mouses 450 dpi is no where near 450, on mine it's 500. I tested it cm/360

Yup. That is why Enotus gives you a false malfunction speed. Anyway, I like 500 CPI over 450. Most people don't use 1 sensitivity and 400-450 CPI.

I agree that a wider and taller FK would be much better, but the AM is not wider than the FK overall. It's only wider at the bottom, IE: triangle/tent shape. Both mice are thin enough to cramp the hand.

If he means that instead of making the base of the mouse thinner to create the grip shape, that if they would have instead increased the wideness towards the top to result in the same shape, then I agree. That's what they should have done.

If BST's mouse has issues and zowie releases a larger version of the FK, then that'll likely be the best available mouse for the foreseeable future.

1 sensitivity? In which game?


Also, the 450DPI setting on the FK is definitely faster than the IE 3.0, so yeah, either the FK has 500DPI or the 3.0 has 400.

I disagree with a wider/taller FK. I prefer a claw grip and this thing is 100x more comfortable than my Deathadder and G500. I'm 5'11" so I have average-sized hands and they have never even felt the slightest bit cramped on this mouse.

You cannot claw a wider mouse? People claw the wider Sensei.

I palm grip. So the AM and FK are on the to thin side for me. I don't curl my thumb because I use the side buttons intensely. When I AWP I use the side button to switch guns faster.

Since Zowie has discontinued the AM-GS, why don't they bring out a white FK already? They said people only want full rubber coating or full glossy, but there is no full gloss FK. Also doesn't the EC1 sell more than the EC2? So why not a FK1 and FK2? Maybe it is because there has been staff changes....

I agree that the deathadder is a terrible shape.

I personally use finger, claw, and palm grips, depending on which game I play. So for me it's important that 1 mouse can be held in all 3 grips. The FK & AM are too thin for palm grip.

Has there? Or is that just a random hypothesis?

No it isn't.

I think that is why people are having trouble with customer service lately.

I love the deathadder's shape. It would have been perfect for me had it been just a tad bit smaller.

Yeah, I also noticed 1150 was 1250. Not sure about 2300

So my FK came in today, here are the first impressions:

Sensor is absolutely flawless, I didn't notice any higher jitter on my QCK+ Fnatic than on QCK+ black
Although I prefer glossy mice, this kind of rubber is not so bad
It's definitely smaller than the AM, but the back of the mouse feels wider
Switches are lighter than on the AM, they feel slightly less tactile, same goes for the wheel
Side buttons are perfectly positioned, imo they feel better than on the AM
MMB is hard to press
LOD is definitely lower than on the AM, but this may be true just for my FK, since the sensor and lens are supposed to be the same. My LOD is like 0,5-1mm

Couldn't find charger for my camera, so I just took some comparison shots with the IMO 1.1 with my cellphone
